Win a cruise!

This post may contain affiliate links. If you click one, I may earn a commission at no cost to you.

I was lucky enough to win not one but TWO cruises, in just three days! I couldn’t believe my luck and since then I’ve decided to enter every cruise competition I can find on the internet.

I decided to create this list of every online cruise competition to make it easier for others to find cruise competitions and enter them online as well. I’ve even provided the answers to any quiz questions for you. Although I can’t guarantee that they’re correct! If you happen to be lucky enough to win a cruise for two and don’t have anyone to take, just shout this way because I’d love to come. Haha!

How to win a free cruise

Entering the competitions to win free cruises is easy. Just click on each of the links below and you’ll be taken to the competition entry pages. Just enter your details and off you go. And don’t forget to check your emails in case you win!

As I’m based in the UK, I have chosen cruise competions which are open to UK residents.

Competitions with text and postal entries

Some cruise competitions are only open to people entering via text or post. I usually don’t enter these as there is a charge to enter by text and I think that entering by post is a bit of a faff. If I ever have to post anything it usually stays in my handbag for a few weeks until I pass a post box!

However, if you’d like to enter the competitions too, then please go ahead. The links to the competition details are below.

  1. Thanks very much for sharing all these with us Jenni!

    Well done on winning some great prize cruises. Sounds amazing 🙂
    I’d love to know, did you win them through your cruise company ie for employees only or were you really lucky in beating thousands of entrants via an entry form?
    Was there any skill involved?

    Good luck for your winning your next cruise!

    • Thank you. There are some competitions which are only for travel agents and while I do enter those too, all the ones I post here are ones that anyone in the UK can enter. If any skill’s involved it’s only ever a quick Google of the answer which I do for you to save you time 🙂 Good luck!
